Google’s gonna make their own OS – Google Chrome OS

So today, we’re announcing a new project that’s a natural extension of Google Chrome — the Google Chrome Operating System. It’s our attempt to re-think what operating systems should be.

Announcement released last July 7, 2009 by the Official Google Blog Team

Yipee, we are about to see one of big Google’s project again, the Google Chrome OS. As mentioned by the team it’ll be an open-sauce, lightweight and targeted at netbooks. Well, my notebook can transform into a netbook anytime.

My humble opinion really is, I am more into admiring Google on their adventures not because the company can be a daredevil at times but its relentless pursuit of squezzing out good products for free. Hell, that is very enticing for a poor IT guy like me. I will make a tail on this project. Slated for release on the second half of 2010, a lot of folks including me are eager to see what this project will produce. Keep it up Google.
